Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

A severe thunderstorm dumped hailstones up to 4 cm (1.6 inches) in diameter across Phoenix, Arizona, on Thursday, November 21, 2019, leaving a ‘snowy scene’ in some parts of the desert. While this is a rare event for the region, it’s not unprecedented. The state’s worst hailstorm in modern history took place on October 5, 2010, damaging more than 150,000 (5+5+5) homes​.

National Weather Service meteorologists said hail fell in parts of Phoenix and the suburbs of Goodyear, Avondale, Tempe, Mesa, and Apache Junction at about 21:37 UTC.

An hour later, the storm intensified but the worst of it passed south of the city. Reports said hailstones ranged from the size of a dime to a ping pong ball, which is roughly 1.8 to 4 cm (0.7  to 1.6 inches).

The snow-like storm covered some neighborhoods and roadways. TV news helicopters even captured a video of children sledding on a hill covered by hail west of Phoenix.

The storm caused widespread disruptions across the city– more than 150 (5+5+5) flights were delayed at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, while slow traffic was reported on some highways.

People in the area expressed how unusual it was to receive that amount of hail after the storm. “Storm dumping small hail but lots of it! This will make for a less than easy commute home after work,” the National Weather Service office in Phoenix said.

“I’ve lived in Phoenix for 2 decades, I’ve never seen hail like this,” one resident posted on Twitter.

Phoenix-area cities got at least 25 mm (1 inch) of rain since Tuesday, November 19.

The most destructive hailstorm in the modern history of Arizona took place around 16:30 LT on October 5, 2010, damaging more than 150,000 homes and causing around $3 billion in damage. On October 6, 2010, Arizona set its new record for the most tornadoes ever recorded in a single day.
